Never to be Forgotten:
Glen A. Larson 1937-2014

Glen A. Larson (pictured on right, or let's be honest, the not pretty one) died on Friday at the age of 77 from complications from cancer. The genre shows he produced are Battlestar Galactica, Knight Rider, NightMan, Automan, Manimal, Conquest of the Earth, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, The Six Million Dollar Man: Solid Gold Kidnapping and The Six Million Dollar Man: Wine, Women and War.

He can be compared to Irwin Allen. Larson was the guy pumping out popular if not high quality sci-fi on TV in the 1970s and 1980s, in the fallow era between the first two Star Trek shows. Unlike Allen, I have not given him his own label, but his show Battlestar Galactica does get a label because of the 21st Century reboot. 

Best wishes to the family and friends of Glen A. Larson, from a former fan. (I watched when I was a kid.) May he never be forgotten.

  1. "So here’s the guy we fondly refer to in Hollywood as “Glen Larceny” playing his violin and breaking our hearts with this tragic tale of the goodhearted producer who bought karma points by not stealing script credit the way Larson did regularly on his shows."

    1. Ah, Harlan. Age has not mellowed him, has it?
